David Warner gestures with his trouser pockets during the match against England on Saturday. Reuters
Warner was playing his first Test after serving a one-year ban following the infamous 'sandpapergate' in Cape Town last year. The opener was fielding in front of the Hollies Stand on Saturday when the crowd started shouting: "He's got sandpaper in his hands!"
Warner also acknowledged the crowd by opening both his palms to show that there was nothing in his hands before emptying his pockets too, following which the crowd gave him a loud and heartfelt round of applause.
The first Ashes Test hasn't gone well for Warner as he could only manage scores of 2 and 8 in the two innings.

Offspinner Nathan Lyon was often unplayable with 6-49 and passed 350 Test wickets in a remarkable turnaround for the Australians who had been reduced to 122-8 in their first innings at a hostile Edgbaston.
The star batsman fell face forward onto the ground and received several minutes of on-field treatment involving both Australian and England medical staffs amid concerns he could be concussed. He eventually got to his feet and then, after a prolonged conversation with Australia team doctor Richard Saw, decided to retire hurt with Smith receiving a generous round of applause as he walked back into the pavilion.
